        To say Whitney Williams grew up in a political family is a bit of an understatement. Her father Pat served 18 years as Montana's representative in the U.S. House. Her mother Carol was the first woman to serve as both the majority and minority leader in the state senate.
    Whitney worked on several political campaigns, served as the trip director for First Lady Hillary Clinton, and is the founder and CEO of the Seattle-based public policy and philanthropic firm known as williamsworks.
    Williams was in Missoula recently to speak at a local democratic function hosted by her parents - and she also took time to sit down in our studios with News Director Sally Mauk to talk about her family's political legacy.
